Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai was named one of the world’s 10 “smart governors” by the British magazine Monocle, which credited Huldai with transforming his city into a “magnet for young tech entrepreneurs.”

The magazine said its list recognizes leaders who have “big ideas and bold vision—civic leaders that put their homes on the map for all the right reasons.” Huldai came in fourth on the list.

“When Ron Huldai, a former fighter pilot, stepped into office in 1998, Tel Aviv was nearly bankrupt,” the magazine wrote. “Inheriting a crumbling infrastructure with businesses packing up and moving out, Huldai’s three terms as mayor are the urban equivalent of alchemy.”
